. >> a conservative, very, very not good enough, expensive, complicated program when we could have had medicare for all, when they rolled that out in 1965, papers, pencils, telephones, they didn't even have the internet. people like it, as you said, not just the 43% of people, only 43 dislike it, something like 65% really like it. >> and in fact when -- >> and it would have been a single payer medicaid for all program would have been simple as heck. you just pay your taxes, government pays the bills, no website, no confusion. that's what we didn't get, and it's the spin machine that's made us think that this is some kind of -- >> and despite all the spin and despite the complication and the healthcare.gov glitches, when we look at the questions about an opinion of the affordable care act, we still see that in october of 2013, in september of 2013, in july of 2013, it's pretty consistently above a third of americans thinking it's a good idea, fewer than half of americans thinking it's a bad idea, and this is despite, as you point out, tara, the massive misinformation obfuscation campaign by repu
